From the beauty of the Willamette Valley and Portland Skyline, through the port of Portland, into the epic Columbia Gorge, and through the locks at Bonneville Dam, this fully narrated tour of the Pacific Northwest aboard the Explorer is an exhilarating, informative journey. At the halfway point of the journey in Cascade Locks, enjoy a relaxing lunch at Locks Waterfront Grill before the return-trip to Portland.
